Yamaha R25 launched in Indonesia

Yamaha R25 launched in Indonesia last week and it was the most awaited quarter litre motorcycle in recent times and we are sitting in India are hoping and desperately waiting for it to reach our land. The design and styling inspiration comes from the R6S. The design and development team has done a great job with the Yamaha R25. The pilot lamp is a little triangle that sits atop the twin headlamps in the front fairing that also holds the rear view mirrors. R25 Auto Expo FrontThe instrument cluster comprises of the Analog Tachometer with Digital – Trip, Speedometer, Clock, fuel meter, Gear indicator alongside it. The red line for the engine starts at 14000 rpm so imagine revving the machine all the way up in each gear. We think the exhaust canister with the silver tip should sound just right and provide for better weight distribution The 14.3-litre fuel tank has a black strip in the centre tapering down into the splits. It is there in any colour you choose and should be a good aid to the rider while leaning on the curves or just tucking-in those knees on the straight lines. The machine comes with 10 spoke alloys, neat and simple graphics on the fairing that read R25 and Yamaha below it. We particularly like the foot pegs in chrome finish and shaped like wings. They just stand out for us. This quarter litre liquid-cooled, in-line, four-stroke, two-cylinder engine comes with a six-speed gearbox. The eight-valve DOHC motor produces maximum power of 35.5bhp at 12000rpm and peak torque of 2.25kgm at 10000 rpm. The R25’s 166 kg kerb weight is supported by telescopic front forks and a monoshock rear suspension, and single front and rear disc brake.  We just can’t wait to get ourselves straddled onto the Yamaha R25 and just Rev It!!
